I know it is only preseason but, you can not deny the Texans have looked stellar and if your like a Texans fanatic then most of this writeup you may already know or talked about.

We are currently 3-0 this preseason, and that is saying something. Because We have had a major overhaul in our defense. We changed our defense from a 4-3 to a 3-4 this off season. Meaning we changed our former number one draft pick Mario Williams from his former position of DE to outside linebacker, but he will rarely ever drop back into coverage, and he will mainly rush the passer mainly because of his size. We have also moved Conner Barwin to linebacker from DE, and he has been very disruptive getting on average one sack per game. He may very well be the best at creating pressure on our team, and Now that Mario is a linebacker. We had to draft a defensive end with our number one draft pick. We ended up drafting J.J Watt and he has been just plain outstanding. We needed to fix our last place secondary and we did. Bringing in safety Danieal Manning and corner Jonathan Joseph. This is a major up grade over Jackson and Pollard. with Jackson our #2 corner we will have a better chance finishing out games.

Our defence is ranked number two in total defense behind the jets

look here

Our offense needs to wake up. There has been a lot of over thrown balls, but that can be fixed. I got a huge scare in the last game against the 49ers. When the Texans threw a pick on the opening play for a pick six, and at that moment i thought to myself it has to be the same old Texans, but i was proven wrong. They did not give up Schaub led the team, and we won with the help from the defense. The Texans from the past would of just called it quits, but they did not show any expressions that they were going to back down. One key thing that did stand out to me was right before halftime against the 49ers. They decided to go deep with a few seconds on the clock with a major lead instead of taking a knee like they would of done in the past.


The return game is just dreadful try to i look away, and pray we don't fumble or lose yards every time we get a return. On a bright side. We have a really amazing kicker i mean this guy can hit and hard no not with his foot but with his pads he is not scared to get dirty all he has to do is kick all his three point attempts and i will be happy.


I know this is preseason, but i am officially ready for some football!


Please leave me some feedback. I been trying hard to get my spelling corrected!

Thanks!

I know Wade has probably forgot about more defensive football than Smith/Bush have ever known and I know Wade isn't a dummy.

the pessimistic side of me hopes that we haven't shown too many cards. (I don't think he has, but it is in the back of my mind).. I am just gunshy on this team.. 10 years of fools gold...fool me once shame on you, fool me 10 times... shame on me ...

I DO have a good feeling about this team (which my history of feelings and how they turn out is one reason I won't gamble) BUT.....

With that said... LETS KICK some AFC ass :fans:

10 years of fools gold...fool me once shame on you, fool me 10 times... shame on me ...

See, I just don't get this from some fans. 10 years of "Fools Gold"? I mean come on, did anyone really have many expectations the first 6 years or so? Outside of being a complete homer, you had to know that this team didn't have legitimate shots really until 2008. So for me, I've really only been let down the last 2 maybe 3 years. Some of you are so over dramatic!

I was just counting the Texan's years in existence that was all

I didn't have much expectations the first 2 years then 2005 season(which we thought was promising at the start), the bottom dropped out and we were starting over and drafting at the top again

The best way I've heard Wade's defense described was he plays a 5-2 front . Barwin , Mario , Watt , Brooks ,and Smith are athletic and aggresive .

Your posting is much better .

Well in that case, it's certainly been a long time coming. Look at it this way. The Steelers only sniffed a playoff once in their first 38 years (footballreference). Yikes! Look how they turned out! Understandibly, some of us still want to be around when the Texans do big things. :gun:

As many have said, this is the first year I'm extremely excited before the start of the regular season. Last year it wasn't until we beat the Colts game 1, then 4-2 after 6 games, then, what the Hell?. We actually have a fully legitimate team this year, with one exception, ST. GET IT TOGETHER MARCIANO!!!

Good job SIAB. You took a lot of flak, deservedly so, for your grammar and spelling but you're on the right track. In your first sentence, you said, "I know it is only preseason but, you can not deny the Texans have looked stellar and if your like a Texans fanatic then most of this writeup you may already know or talked about." The bold part should be "you're". Here's a helpful link if you so should choose to use it.

Your spelling and grammar have approved by at least an order of magnitude. Your diligence is paying off and I expect it will likely continue to pay off for the rest of your life. You will not be sorry that you invested the time and effort required to take this problem in hand.

Very impressive. Well done, young man.

However, there is one piece of editorial feedback I will offer you. When you use the word "I" in the middle of a sentence, it should be capitalized. Using a small "i", as you did in a number of instances might be acceptable for texting, but it is not acceptable for writing proper sentences.

How stupid do you think i am? I have all ways had problems with spelling, and asking if I am a import is just rude. For your info i am not a import, but if you really wanted to know you should of private messaged me instead of trolling my thread.

Wasn't a hit on you man. I do not know the history on your ability, or inability, to communicate with proper grammar. I know a lot of people on forums like to be grammar police. I was either suggesting that you had immigrated from somewhere, or simply had grown up and decided not to speak like the status quo. Never did I assume nor indicate that you are presently stupid.

Either way, congrats on your improved ability to communicate.

Excellent review.... excellent write up.

Truth, I'm worried.

There is no way an opposing team is going to let Andre Johnson get as wide open as what we've seen in the preseason. There is no way we can keep trotting Jacoby Jones out there if Matt don't trust him (hence the high thrown balls, the balls in the dirt, the wide throws). There is no way an opposing team is going to gash us once or twice then abandon the run.

Some things have definitely gone in our favor. But I'm thinking there's more fools gold in what we've seen than not. I'm not seeing any depth at the WR position. I think our depth at LB is pretty thin.

We look good at RB, QB, & CB..... other than that, 16 games is a long time to hold ones breath.

You mean to tell me you didn't even get just a little bit excited during the Domanick Davis era?

"noticeable" is a huge understatement.
